This question may seem a little basic, however, I am extremely confused as to when exactly the LORs should be sent to LSDAS in order for everything to go smoothly.

I am taking my LSATs on Sept. 26 and I believe I should receive my results on October 19 if I am not mistaken. Thus, when should I ask my professors to have them ready by ? Can I start applying as soon as I have my scores on October 19 ? If so, I realize it is better to start applying early so should I have all recommendations at the LSDAS by October 19 or earlier ? 

Also, since I am on the topic, how much time should I give the professor in advance to write the letters ? Is 2 months too much ?

Thanks so much for your answers in advance,

- Sofiya

There is no such thing as too early. The schools start accepting applications as soon as Sep. which means u must have everything on file, excluding your LSAT, by that date. On the LSAC website it mentions that u have to register with LSDAS 4-6 weeks before your first application. If u r planning on early decision u must have everything on file on or before 2 months from paying your dues. I am on the same track and will take the LSAT on Sep 26, as well. I have requested everything and awaiting my exam date.
